With no movies to shoot, no meetings to attend and no red carpets to grace, lockdown-afflicted celebrities are pursuing forgotten hobbies or browsing through old photo albums to share warm memories.

Sukanya Verma offers some of the sweetest throwbacks that popped on their pages in recent times.

Riding high on the critical acclaim of their brand new Web series Paatal Lok, Anushka Sharma shared a childhood picture of hers and brother Karnesh.

Together, the Sharma siblings founded Clean Slate Films in 2013, which has films like NH10, Pari and Phillauri to its credit.

While we are on the subject of sisters, you must check out this fun photograph of 'Batman' Sonam and fashion-forward Rhea Kapoor participating in a fancy-dress competition. Clearly, these trendsetters were always into dress up.

1980s It Girls and besties Poonam Dhillon and Padmini Kolhapure reminisce the good old days of pre-social distancing Bollywood hobnobbing in this precious throwback.

Sara Ali Khan's maternal legacy is no less imposing. Three generations of strong women -- high-profile socialite Rukhsana Sultan, her actress daughter Amrita Singh and her new-born Sara.

The director of romances like Socha Na Tha, Love Aaj Kal, Jab We Met, Rockstar... is quite the hunk himself. Bet he was quite popular among the ladies right from his school days.

PZ is quarantining in US, but her heart is still in India and thinking about the romantic holiday she took with 'pati parmeshwar' Gene Goodenough when they were last here.

A visibly awed Abhishek Bachchan enjoys the company of towering men AB and Jackie Shroff -- his idols on screen and off it.

 

Arjun Kapoor

Arjun Kapoor's throwback pictures are always so droll. Here's one of him and pal Varun Dhawan before they 'shined up like a new penny' and became movie stars.

 

Malaika Arora

Malaika shares a picture of hers and son Arhaan from a holiday to acknowledge 'a time where life felt normal compared to all that is restricted today -- food, travel, hugs, kisses, work, friends, family'.

Ello, ello! Just calling to say the Student of the Year 2 debutant was quite a ladoo as a baby.

Daddy's girl Shabana Azmi looks pretty as punch perched on her Abba and eminent Urdu poet Kaifi Azmi's lap.
